I had 3 questions about address STD postcards.
1) For an unmarried friend who will be getting a +1 on the invite, do I address the STD as Jane Doe & Guest? Or just Jane Doe?
2) For a married female co-worker who still uses her maiden name, do I address it just to her (Jane Doe), her and her husband named separately even though I’ve never met him (Jane Doe & Joe Schmo), or do some weird hyphen thing (Mr. & Mrs. Doe-Schmo)?
3) Mr./Ms./Mrs. necessary for STDs?
I will definitely keep things more formal on the invitations so there is no question as to who is invited. But I wasn’t sure if there was a casual way to go about it for the Save-The-Date Cards.
Thanks for your help!

I asked a similar question a month or so ago when we were sending out our Save-The-Date Cards. The general consensus was that you do not need to put an “and guest” on Save-The-Date Cards, you can save it for the invitation. Otherwise, we addressed them as we would invitations “Mr. and Mrs. X” or “Mr. X and Ms. Y” if they have different last names.
ETA: I didn’t see your last question, I think it’s totally up to you. I think postcards are not as formal and you can either put titles or leave them off. I don’t think there are as specific of etiquette rules surrounding STDs!

When I wasn’t sure how to address to someone, I would put the person I was inviting’s name and family. I’m not sure if that’s the ‘correct’ way, but it was my way lol i’m not one for formalities, especially on a STD card! When I sent my brother’s card, because he and his wife are divorced and live apart, but spend alot of time together and she still comes for Christmas, I wasn’t sure what was appropriate, so that’s why I did it that way: Mike Smith and family 🙂
